G108: Contemporary Art Nouveau Metal Garden Gates

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Lymm, Cheshire

These steel garden gates were commissioned by a customer with a passion for the Art Nouveau period. Their design uses a bare minimum of straight lines and features long elegant forged tapers throughout. The gates don't use a conventional frame as such and this gives them a sense of movement and vitality.

The more functional parts of the gates such as the drop bolts and catch have been designed to blend in and complement its flowing curvilinear design. The gate was first galvanised, then finished with hand rubbed graphite enhanced paint. This gives it a subtle silver-black finish and highlights the texture of the forged steel.

These gates have a very strong Art Nouveau influence
The gates are about 1.8m wide
